Extended Learning does not sanction any one lender; however, there are a multitude of private lenders that will fund programs for Extended Learning (non-matriculated) students. If you are a student who is matriculated (formally accepted to the campus) in an Extended Learning degree program and need additional information about Financial Aid options, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 760-750-4850 or go to www.csusm.edu/finaid.
Noncredit courses are not eligible for financial aid. However, several of our noncredit programs are approved for federal funding via the Federal Workforce Innovation & Opportunities Act (WIOA) and for the MyCAA military spouse scholarship. For additional information
